Assigning medical alerts
You can assign medical alerts from the Patient Banner. To create a new or to edit an existing medical alert, click customizing medical alerts.
Important: The HIPAA Privacy Rule established national standards to protect an individual's medical records and other personal health information. The rule applies to health care providers and requires appropriate safeguards to protect the privacy of personal health information and sets limits and conditions on the uses and disclosures that health care providers may make of such information without a patient's authorization.
To assign a medical alert
1. In the Patient Banner, click the Medical Alerts icon.
The Select Medical Alerts dialog box appears.
2. Select all applicable medical conditions for the selected patient, and then click OK.
If you haven't previously assigned a medical alert to the selected patient, the Medical Alerts icon turns red.
